Why We Love This

The Ultra is a full wrap to ensure coverage even if they have an extra hard way of twisting while pushing off the ground. It can also be used for horses with arthritic hocks to prevent chill. The thin neoprene and double layer of fleece make a very comfortable but tough boot that can be worn full-time for those horses with deep chronic sores.
Favorite Features
  • Effective against most hock sores
  • Great for horses with arthritic hocks to prevent chill
  • Thin neoprene and double layer of fleece for added comfort
  • Safe to be worn full-time

At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

I only use if the horses have to stay up on the dry lot -- like when my TB pulled a muscle last spring and had to be confined. He get's hock sores if he has to lay down on anything hard. The hock shields helped. They do stretch significantly over time, especially with washing. The first pair I ordered was a L/XL and they are starting to wear out/ getting torn. I'm ordering a second pair, in anticipation of the demise of the first pair, but this time I'm ordering the S/M. I think they'll still fit and will definitely fit after they've stretched. Overall the product works, and I like it. I wish they lasted longer. They sometimes come off or slip down on his hoof. It's a fine line between tight enough to stay on and what I worry is too tight.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-02-21</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-02-21" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="185259106"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Hock Shield Ultra" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Aggie96</span> from <span itemprop="name">Healed my gelding in 3 weeks!</span> <span itemprop="description">I have been battling hock sores in my 17.1H 1400lb ottb.

She lurches onto her hocks and pushes herself up. As a result, this past spring she developed a sore on her right hock which we could not get to heal. Another boarder at the barn recommended these. I went with the Ultra rather than regular Hock Shield as I thought the extra strapping would keep the boots on better. It has taken four months, but the sore is healed. A few pointers: 1) do not use any sticky antibiotic spray that will stick to the fleece lining (like AluShield) with these - when you take off the boot you'll take off the newly formed scab. Once I discovered this I switched to Blu Kote and the sore started healing faster. 2) even though these are lightweight, the horse's leg will sweat. Keeping them on all the time may not be a good thing. Five just wears hers for turnout. 3) Your horse will develop calluses on its hocks - once Five's healed over they are not noticeable. The boots have lasted five months and are still in good shape, though the fleece is a bit worn down. Five continues to wear hers for turnout no matter the weather to prevent more sores on her hocks.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2018-10-26</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2018-10-26" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="182410354"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Hock Shield Ultra" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">mgmfarm</span> from <span itemprop="name">Love these hock shields!</span> <span itemprop="description">It's been several years since I bought my first pair of Hock Shield Ultras. Until I found them I had real problems with hock sores on my TB mare. Tried everything I could find. Asked all my horse friends and my vet for suggestions. Nothing worked for her. Then I found the Hock Shields. Wow! Solution found!! This mare is petite so I have to do some adjusting in the fit. Still, they stay on well, hold up well to nightly wearing - current pair is about 9 months old, have had some pairs last a year. I will say she does get a sore now and then, bad stifles, hips and hocks will make getting up difficult some days. Most times the sores will heal up in a few days with a little care. If they don't I have found a way to bandage the hock for extra protection for a few days, and put the Hock Shield on top of that. These sores are minor compared to what we dealt with before Hock Shields. Another advantage - she has some arthritis in her hocks and stifles. These Shields add just a little warmth and make her more comfortable. Have not had a problem with being too hot in the summer. Have machine washed them and air dry. I do keep an extra set on hand (usually the older pair) just in case. Well made, sturdy outer fabric, soft fleece on the inside. Strong velcro closure. And they work!</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2018-09-28</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2018-09-28" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="182368638"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Hock Shield Ultra" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Lastchance</span> from <span itemprop="name">Well made</span> <span itemprop="description">Well made and the stay put.

Easy to put on and take off, easy to clean, and they really do protect the hocks. The abrasions on my horse&rsquo;s hocks are healing up nicely and almost gone. I did get a second pair to use, while the other pair was being cleaned. I hand washed and line dried the shields, although they are machine washable and drier safe according to the web site of the company who makes these. They do get &ldquo;grungy&rdquo; especially when applying meds on the open sores. The hock shields stayed on, no twisting or turning, and was left on 7x24. Do follow the instructions and check the shields daily for irritation or tightness. Highly recommend.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2018-09-13</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2018-09-13" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="181884193"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Hock Shield Ultra" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">1</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Dogmom</span> from <span itemprop="name">Won't stay on</span> <span itemprop="description">I purchased these for my fine-boned Icelandic mare, but they have come off every night and ended up trampled in the mud or hanging on her foot like a bell boot.
